SPCA Cuts Back on Services Because of Broken Van


Martinsville, VA - The Martinsville-Henry County SPCA is having to cut back on their services all because of a broken vehicle.

Last week their 15-passenger van broke down. Without it, they are really struggling.

To fix the vehicle, it will cost the SPCA $2,500; money they simply don't have. So they are hoping they will be able to raise cash for the car soon.

Until then, Executive Director Nicole Harris has been using her personal vehicle to try to help out. Still, she can't transport as many animals as they would have in the van.

Harris says they are having to limit services because they don't have a way to safely transport as many animals. Normally they have rescue trips every week, which they can bring back six dogs.

Without a van, they are limited on when they can rescue animals, and can only take three dogs at a time. Also, they will have to cut back on spaying and neutering animals or will have to increase the price.

"We're devastated. We're devastated. Facing cutting back a spay and neuter program, which is the heartbeat of this community, and the heartbeat of our no kill movement is a devastating loss," said Harris.
